Hey everyone, just keeping my journal up to date with my newest tutorial and also my older freebies too ;) 

Firstly I just wanted to mention that I'm streaming more often these days over on my twitch channel, where I answer lots of questions! And all streams are archived over on my youtube channel :) 

My latest tut is now available through gumroad.
The video tutorial is 1.15 hours long and covers everything from the initial sketch to final colour, covering composition, colour, value, layer effects etc. Pretty much everything I could think to talk about! Experienced painters will likely know all of this and more, but I always try to cover everything for the sake of any beginners watching. It's quite different from previous tutorials as this is a full blown scene, rather than just a stand alone character.

* You can also grab my brush pack for free, along with an art chat video through gumroad.

I have more tutorials available through my website as well!

And lastly, another freebie is a terribly old tutorial of mine. It was the first one I made and whilst I think it's pretty outdated now, it may still be helpful to some. 

Cheers guys!

Your Throne of Glass art is amazing. I'm looking forward to read "A court of Thorns and Roses", so to watch the matching art you made.
Thank you for your pieces of art. When needed, a mug full of ale will await you in Terrasen. First round's on me. ;)

How it's possible that you do draw this way and be less than 30 yo? It's something that force people to believe in reincarnation! Astonishing! 0_0
